@Bi-Polar Bear,
Interesting question. Here's a provocative answer: Should women be made of the rib of Adam? If not, who should make Eve?

@Bi-Polar Bear,
Cargo swimsuits. Why the heck can't I have a wrench loop on a tankini?

@Bi-Polar Bear,
Women's pants with the same size pockets as the men's. Some gals don't like to schlep around with a handbag!

Women's sizes that make sense.

I think that you have missed the point. Women's sizes are not supposed to make sense. They are supposed to make women think that they are thinner than they really are.

When I was a young'un, missy sizes started at size 10, and juniors at size 9. Over the years the size designations got smaller, but the women didn't.

Why don't they make yard egrets?

I'm talking about a plastic egret, that you can place in your yard, not the real thing.

Men's sizes make sense. You measure the various pieces that the clothes are up against, and just pick your clothing accordingly.

Waist, inseam, chest, arm, neck. That's all I need to know.


For women, you know just the size. Size 10, for example. WTF does size 10 mean?!?!?!?

Now that's a physical impossibility.

@DrewDad,
DrewDad- Don't even attempt to make sense out of it. The whole system is totally irrational. Panties run size 4-10, and have no connection to dress and slacks sizes. Actually the only women's sizing that makes any sense are brassieres! Razz

Non, non egrets? Edith Piaf had that all sewn up.

@DrewDad,
Of course men's sizes make sense. A large shirt tells you it's sportswear. Size 16 denotes the neck size, which is important when wearing a tie, to you know size 16 is a dress shirt. A 16 - 33 indicates a 16" neck with a 33" sleeve. Size 44 is a chest measurement and is used for suit coats and jackets. Belt sizes indicate either the pant size, or the waist, or nothing at all. Never mail order a belt until you have figured out what the size means to each company.

For blokes obviously. Why can't they have a urinal built into the wall of the office (behind a door) or something. When you're working back and drinking coffee and you really need to pee, but you know that if you do your PC will have timed out when you come back or you have forgotten your pass-card. I mean all you have to do is just unzip and pee and get back to the work at hand.

@Mr Stillwater,
It would make even more sense to have that urinal right there in the cubbyhole of your desk. I mean, why bother getting up out of one's chair to go.

@Merry Andrew,
Even more efficient would be a catheter ... designers could work on fashionable pee bags - this could become a real statement.

@Mame,
why not just have your chair be a really comfortable toilet seat and underneath a bidet? that way you could keep working even if you had to do your # 2.....you might want to consider a cubicle wall mounted aerosol dispenser as well...
